Santa Stopped Smoking Through Revisionist History Here Comes The Weight Lose Plan

Santa’s gone cold turkeyalthough he’s still breathing second-hand smoke from those sooty chimneys.

Vancouver, Canada, publisher Grafton and Scratch has released an edited version of Clement Clarke Moore’s 1822 poem, “The Visit From St. Nicholas,” better known as “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” As you may recall, between a description of a “droll little mouth” and a belly “that shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly,” Moore had described the night visitor with a “stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth/And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.”

No more, thanks to Pamela McColl, an author and former smoker who spent $200,000 to delete that verse in her self-published version.

Revisionist historians stops Santa from smoking. Here comes the weight lose revision. No more bowl full of jellly.
